Based on the first RISIS project from 2014-2018, RISIS goes on given the high interest on RISIS datasets and their integration. RISIS2 has started in 2019 and provides ongoing access to the existing RISIS datasets:

Joint and Open REsearch Programmes: features and potentialities of the JOREP database

November 27, 2014 @ 11:00 am - November 28, 2014 @ 1:00 pm

SCA organized by Research Institute on Sustainable Economic Growth (IRCrES) [former CERIS] – CNR , Rome, IT

Course objectives

The course aims at introducing the features of the JOREP database, highlighting the specific contents and framing its potential uses in the context of the theoretical background on which have been designed.

More specifically, the course trains the participants to figure out and to address research questions on joint programming within the ERA, using the JOREP infrastructure, e.g.

  • How relevant are joint programs in the ERA?
  • What kind of integration do they realize? At what level?
  • Which are the main actors involved and how they can be differentiated?
  • How the participation to joint programs can be differentiated by country and disciplines?
  • How skewed is the distribution of resources among joint programmes and what is its impact on the growth dynamics?

The presentation of the technical structure of the infrastructure will facilitate the learning of the techniques of consultation and querying.

At the end of the course, the trainee will be able to handle the dataset, creating custom queries according to own research interests.

Audience targeted

The course aims at involving up to 15 participants among the following categories:

  • Senior scientist, early career researchers and PhD students at the last phase of their training;
  • Officers from the policy making level wishing to extend their analytical capabilities;
  • Research associations.


Requirements for participation

  • Basic working knowledge of MS ACCESS
  • Basics on data querying


Organizational details

  • No fee to be paid
  • Venue of the trainees (travel and accommodation) will be covered only in case of researchers, early researchers and PhDs coming from European countries
  • No costs are covered for people not involved in research activities (i.e. people from associations or policy level)
  • Participants will be selected on the basis of interest and CV
  • Notification of acceptance will be sent after the selection process is completed

Participants attending the course will be asked to send some preliminary questions about data handling in MS ACCESS in order to focus on specific topics applied to the JOREP dataset.
